I just visited a friend in Shawnee, KS, who, to my horror, turned out not to be a chowhound. On the long weekend, she took me to 1) a Cheesecake Factory (I had never heard of it, or I would have protested), 2) a bad Indian buffet place, and 3) a Mexican place that was even worse than Taco Bell (!!).
So, next time I visit I have to take control of the dinner situation. What do KC chowhounds suggest? I'm open to just about anything.
And thanks to John who asked the question below about BBQ -- that post and all the answers helped answer that question.
Steak? Indian? French? Mexican?
Thanks to all who post.
